As the title suggests, these are myths and misconceptions about getting a car dealer to do the dirty job for you. The dirty job, though not dirty at all, is selling or buying the car on your behalf. Below are 11 myths about car dealers;
1. Doubt about integrity of the car parts.
Many ordinary people tend to doubt whether a car sold or bought through a dealer has its parts in their original state. Talk of being genuine. They think that a car dealer can possibly sell a good looking car with its parts not being genuine.
2. Exaggerated price.
Most people have this notion that cars transacted through a dealer are overpriced. They argue that the cars are sold at higher prices so that the dealer can somehow make an extra penny for himself away from the regular pay.
3. Fake documentation.
Here is the real fear. Unreal documents. Where there is an exchange of goods and services there is the point of documents to act as a proof of the transaction. With car dealers, people tend to imagine that their documentations are not so real. If they were not real, then why would they carry out their business in public?
4. Government policy.
Some prospective customers think that car dealers don’t usually comply with the government’s policies rules and regulations. Government, without any doubt, has set rules governing how these businesses are carried out. Buyers, however, think that these restrictions are too tight for a regular car dealer to adhere to.
5. Compliance with the manufacturers.
Dealers don’t make the cars. They are just dealers. Yes. Dealers. With that in mind, the public (car buyers and sellers to be precise) think that the dealers don’t usually comply with the manufacturing companies – the aspect of not being authorized by the manufacturers to sell their products.
6. Fear of being conned.
With the rising number of fraudsters, trusting someone enough to handle your property is sometimes a no-go zone. So clients sometimes fear that they might lose their cars by letting dealers deal with the selling and buying part of the business.
7. The car might sell at a lower price.
Sellers may have the doubt that the dealer would sell the car at the right price but pocket some cash and site to the idea that the car did not sell right. This is one of the realest myth the sellers have for dealers.
8. Follow up.
When you buy something you might want to contact the seller in case of anything. Customers think that they won’t be able to access the car owner in future forgetting that the dealer also has the owner’s information.
9. The internet is the best place to get a good deal on a new car.
Internet is on the rise. A lot of transactions can be done online these days (even buying a car). This makes customers to neglect the dealership part. To be honest, would you prefer buying a car online where price is fixed or through a dealer who you can negotiate with?
10. Dealers are difficult to negotiate with.
Of course it is rather hard to beat someone in his game. True. Dealers, however, are not superheroes in it. You can still be smarter and get a great deal. Dealers just try to maintain the marked price of the car and not being extra ordinary in the deals.
11. Fear of losing the car eventually.
In some occasions, car buyers think that the dealer who set them a sweet deal to get the car could on a later date organize for hit men to come after them. This myth makes customers to prefer buying the cat from the car yards and not through the dealers. Such cases never exists, do they?
